NORMAN BARRINGTON'S WABC 50 YEARS IN
A CHRONOLOGICAL MONTAGE
years in 50 minutes
Norman Barrington's big chronological montage
I have tried to
use less familiar cuts, and for added interest, a sprinkling of
cuts that never made it on air (often for obvious reasons). I
have avoided basic demo cuts, so as not to be predictable, but
where they do appear I have rendered them in stereo, whereas
normally they would be only heard in mono.
chronology might not be perfect, it's fairly consistent, thus
illustrating the changing styles as the decades rolled by.
I hope you agree
it captures the different facets of arguably America's biggest
station, as well as the well respected presenters.
Siday, Ross, CRC,
PAMS, Homegrown, Pepper(!), Thunder, and JAM are all
It struck me that
Jon Wolfert at JAM has managed to keep the WABC account
for longer that all the other jingle companies put together by a
long shot, a fitting tribute to WABC's number #1 fan and expert,
thus I dedicate this sampler to him.
